level women appointed to federal positions outside the white house. 35% under president obama, and 25% under george w. bush. equally worth noting both of president obama's supreme court appointments were women. perhaps the real question about diversity within the president's inner circle isn't biological, but intellectual. the washington post's ezra cline notes that president obama hasn't named an outsider to his economic team since his initial 2009 picks. in a little over an hour the president will nominate jack lu for treasury secretary, a man who previously served as a budget director and currently as his chief of staff. cline writes, "can it really be the case that after four very difficult years there is nothing the white house would gain in its second term by bringing in outsiders with fresh experience, different relationships, and a new perspective." david corn, there has always been a lot of talk about the ins lears about the obama white house. >> yes. >> i mean, i do think we're kind of like at halftime here and the white males have run up the score so far in the first two
